A sponge mop usually features a longer handle than other mop types do, which prevents the user from having to bend over when operating. Many styles also include a roller wringer, so you can wring out the mop head without having to touch the soiled sponge with your hands. You’ll also find a commercial sponge mop with a hook on its handle that allows for convenient storage.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Shrubs to 3 m tall, with green stems and yellow pea-like flowers. Refer to the Brooms table for a quick comparison of distinguishing characteristics. The brooms were originally introduced as landscape ornamentals. Scotch and Spanish broom were also extensively planted along highways in some areas to prevent soil erosion in the early half of 1900’s. Brooms have escaped cultivation and have aggressively invaded many natural areas. Scotch and French broom often form dense stands that displace native vegetation and wildlife. Infestations in forested areas increase fire hazard and on rangeland, diminish usability. Flowers and seeds of brooms contain quinolizidine alkaloids and can be toxic to humans and livestock when ingested. Foliage may be mildly toxic and is unpalatable to most livestock, except goats. Scotch and Spanish broom are used medicinally in Europe. However, Scotch broom is considered to be an unsafe herb by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The modern homemaker can choose from a range of implements to clean his floors, including synthetic brooms, the constantly metastasizing Swiffer product and, of course, the vacuum cleaner. The last of these is highly effective at certain tasks (especially the cleaning of carpets), but most American homes still keep an old-fashioned broom around for its unfailing dependability. For a household item essentially perfected in its design so many decades ago, the broom’s staying power—both as a cleaning tool and cultural symbol of neat domestic tranquility—is remarkable and deserved.

—Constituents—Broom contains two principles on which its activity depends. Sparteine, discovered in 1851 by Stenhouse, of which about 0.03 per cent is present, is a transparent, oily liquid, colourless when fresh, turning brown on exposure, of an aniline-like odour and a very bitter taste. It is but slightly soluble in water, but readily soluble in alcohol and ether. Stenhouse stated that the amount of Sparteine in Broom depends much upon external conditions, that grown in the shade yielding less than that produced in sunny places.
Other farmers quickly planted acres of broomcorn and joined the trade, as broom cultivation and construction was a fairly simple side-job that could fit easily into the pre-established rhythms of agricultural life. By the first few decades of the 19th century, a number of versions of the “broom machine”—a set of vices, clamps and a foot treadle (essentially a tension apparatus that uses the broom-maker’s feet to keep a roll of twine taut as he winds it around the broom corn)—had been developed that made broom manufacturing even quicker.

I have no idea why that fine print about plaster walls has been added. I’ve used an old deep scan model on my plaster walls for years and it works just fine. It is obviously more difficult for any device to measure density change when there is thick plaster and then wood strips running across the studs, but it works for me every time.

Lawn and garden tools present a paradox: You can never find the right tool when you need it, then when you aren’t looking for it, it’s in your way. This simple-to-build locker solves both problems. It stores tools so they’re easy to find, and it does so in a convenient location in your yard so they’re not cluttering your garage.
The room itself is cobwebbed, and dingy with old paint; its floor is strewn with grey sand, in a fashion that has elsewhere fallen into long disuse; and it is easy to conclude, from the general slovenliness of the place, that this is a sanctuary into which womankind, with her tools of magic, the broom and mop, has very infrequent access.
Hi Travis, thanks. Wow, 13 bikes! I only have 3 currently, but could use one more. Right now I don’t have manageable space for those, let alone enough for a fourth, in a little apartment. I’m an avid cyclist too, so that’s not that many really. :smileyhappy:
